Art Bead Scene - April Challenge

My entry for the ABS monthly challenge... inspired by the work of my favorite French Impressionist, Claude Monet. The piece, chosen by the ABS writers, is titled "Walk in the Meadows at Argenteuil" . Please see Art Bead Scene Blog: April Monthly Challenge for more information on the challenge and on this artist's work. 

This photo of David making a tiny glass snail was published by the Evansville Courier and Press 
 I treasure the little snail he gave me as a present.
David's Facebook page is:!/pages/David-Powell-Glass-Art/208810132463735

My piece has focal beads made of polymer clay along with one clear glass bead made by
David Powell.

I met David and his wife at a local gallery, and was in awe of his beautiful glass beads and other objects. I purchased three of his lovely creations, and have finally found a good home for one of the set.

Here is another photo with a few details of my neckpiece...


  1. Oh Jill! I got tears in my eyes, Monet is naturally one of my favourites, too, and your jewelry totally catches the atmosphere of that painting! I love your art beads!

  2. Love this - it captures the mood of the painting perfectly.

  3. This is beautiful Jill and has your signature written all over it. I can always pick out one of your pieces from all the rest, your style is so unique! Hope you're doing well.
